No matter the outcome of upcoming elections, Finland's parliament will consider marriage equality and gay adoption bills in its next session, Ice News reports:
Taru Tujunen, the National Coalition Party secretary, said an initiative would be put forward at the next party congress which would call for gender-neutral marriage. The SDP will also make similar calls for adoption rights for same-sex couples during their May party congress.
The idea of gender-neutral marriage was first touted by the Green League’s Oras Tynkkynen last year, while party secretay Panu Laturi said, 'The present law on marriage is discriminatory. Couples of the same gender still do not have the right to marry the person that they love.'"
